I am headed to a much needed vacation to Hawaii tomorrow and cannot wait for some sun!  I was planning on posting some photos of a wedding we coordinated on the Big Island a few years but but didn’t get to it.  I promise to post them when we return but until then, enjoy this darling photo of Yvonne & Scott with their Hawaiian Leis!

Meagan & Jonathan are a great couple getting married this July at Columbia Edgewater Country Club.  I have had the opportunity to get to know Meagan over the last few months and she could not possibly be sweeter.  Meagan has some really fun ideas brewing for the wedding and is planning on gorgeous vibrant tones of oranges and blues.

Willow & Scott’s White & Black Wedding

Thursday, April 14th, 2011

Willow & Scott were a super fun couple to work with to say the least.  Willow could easily be a stand up comic…she is absolutely hilarious and pretty much every single time we got together for planning, half the meeting was spent laughing.

 The ceremony and reception took place at a gallery in the Pearl District and we were going for a chic and modern white and black look.    Staying true to the Willow and Scott’s personalities, the entire wedding party danced down the aisle, we brought in a dueling pianist, the first dance started slow and faded into a hip hop song, toasts were hysterical and guests danced the night away.

Planning this wedding was so  much fun and watching it all come together with our crazy ideas was pretty amazing.   The guests all had a blast and Willow & Scott both had the biggest smiles on their faces the entire day.   Love this couple!

J+J’s Fab Engagement Session

Monday, April 11th, 2011

We work with several clients that are planning a Portland wedding from out of state.  This past week I met with Jamie & Jason,  a great couple that live in the LA area and are getting married in Portland later in May.  We had a whirlwind day of planning and finalizing details and I’m getting really excited for the big day!  While they were in town, I revisited their engagement session photos and they are so darling I just had to share them with you all.

Jamie & Jason love the work of Kim Fox, owner of  LA based studio, Kim Fox Photography.  She shot all of these images and will be flying up to Portland to shoot the wedding day as well.

I will upload wedding photos as soon after the wedding as I can.  If they come out as beautifully as the engagement photos I will be thrilled!!

Kaitlyn+Dave’s Spring Celebration

Thursday, April 7th, 2011

Kaitlyn and Dave were married on one of Portland’s rare beautiful spring days this year.  The sun was shining, the bride was stunning and the groom could not have been more excited.  I worked with Kaitlyn and her mom, Robin, on a majority of the pre-planning and I absolutely loved getting the know them both.  They have such warm hearts and were so looking forward to celebrating with their loved ones.  The wedding day went off without a hitch!  We were right on schedule the entire day, the room came together beautifully and Kaitlyn and Dave were glowing all night.

Holland Studios did an amazing job capturing the gorgeous couple and the entire feel of the day.  The wedding was only a few days ago and a fabulous slideshow is already finished and online!  My absolute favorite image was taken on the waterfront with the blooming cherry blossoms.  A big congrats to Kaitlyn and Dave and their wonderful family!

Working with wonderful people and seeing a couple that is so meant to be coming together is what really makes my job so fulfilling!!

Darling Ring Pillow!

Sunday, April 3rd, 2011

I am in LOVE this ring pillow from Giggle Room’s Etsy Store! I saw this featured in the newest issue of Bride’s Magazine and am dying for one of my brides to use it for her wedding.  Best Part?  Its only $38!

The calendar is printed on a vintage linen/cotton tea towel and a heart is hand embroidered on the wedding day.  They have a few colors to choose from and its fully customizable.   What a fun and unique wedding detail!
